The organizations which receive support from the TRA in this area include Rashid Centre for the Disabled, Emirates Autism Center, Zayed Higher Organization for Humanitarian Care & Special Needs, and Khorfakkan Club for Disabled.

The TRA’s CSR program covers a wide range of initiatives, and one of the main themes is availing the latest technologies to provide extensive care for individuals with special needs.

“We are delighted to continue our efforts in sponsoring Rashid Centre for the Disabled for the third year in a row. Our commitment and motivation behind the development of the CSR initiative with the Centre remains focused on realizing the TRA’s vision to move the ICT sector forward, while producing visible and real benefits to the UAE youth and community as a whole. This approach is based on the national perspective that aims at making use of all the human talent in the UAE by employing them in various fields and aspects of the building and development process,” said H. E. Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri, TRA Director General.

The cooperation between TRA and Rashid Centre for the Disabled contributes to meeting the Centre’s current requirements and supporting future expansion projects that aim to create better opportunities for students, to take another step forward through the modernization of services and sharpening of skills to develop their ability to work and integrate into their surrounding environments and the society.
